Easter egg hat

So Easter is.. in 2 weekends. My grandma is having a contest of who can make the best Easter hat. of course it has to be done from scratch...

So I am trying to come up with ideas my mom suggested a egg with a chicken hatching out of it. and what do ya know i found an example. as well as some other crazy hats.

I just donno what I am going to do. But I am totally going to have the best one!

almost time to go!

So apparently there is a new pilot on the CW for a vampire show! The Vampire Diaries... which is based off of a book series...which I may have to read! Sadly the show doesn't air until the fall. At least thats what I think. But if he is in it I am totally on board. He is almost as hot as Henry Cavill...

Ian Somerhalder... pretty dreamy. You may remember him from Lost.

Time for the Gym!

Back to work

Going back to work after being off for so long is not easy. I am finding it difficult to do these gate plans too because I spent so much time on Don's house before I could work on them. So they are not fresh in my memory and I am having a hard time figuring out all my notes. Maybe I am just retarded.

Getting up this morning was super hard. I don't think I was fully back on Virginia time yet. Ashley and I ran yesterday and are running today after work. I'm doing my best to improve my time every time we run. I like running in the morning so much more than after work. Soon enough It will be hot and we will have to get up at the crack of dawn to run. But like anything once you get used to it, it is fine.

California was fun, though I was glad to come home. The entire trip was done as a group though and was pretty much planned out for us. I thought Zach and I would spend more time together with just us, but we didn't even have a dinner with just us or anything. But it was a free trip, and we had a lot of fun. But I would enjoy it being just me and him much more I think, so SOMEDAY. I almost felt more tired after my vacation than before it. There really wasn't any time to relax. The time change skrewed me up alot too. I would have to say Disneyland was my favorite and I got mickey mouse ears with my name on it. Ha.

I am looking foreward to next weekend though and some time to myself this week.

Verizon Fios Today

So I am at home Verizon is here installing my FIOS. So excited! Its taking him a long time. He got here at 10 so I was thinking he'd be done and I could go into work for the second half of the day but he is still doing stuff trying to run something from the telephone pole to my house... SO who knows.

Ashley and I are running two miles today! 

Here is my kitchen with the new wall color. Paris rain. Its a greenish color. I think you could see it better if it was sunny out but oh well! Now I just need new hardware on my cabinets and new light fixtures. ( as you can see the fan is still dismantled)
And the painting I did for the kitchen though the picture is kinda crappy.

I need a stop watch

I'm thinking I will go to target and get this one...


So Zach and I go to Anaheim soon... like 12 days. I am pretty excited. I've started tanning so I am not so ghostly vampire white. HA. I feel overwhelmed with vacations all of a sudden. I rarely go out of town so it is kind of a big thing. Plus I have never been on a vacation with my boyfriend so this will be a first for me.

This summer I have my Smith family reunion which occurs every 5 years in the absolute middle of nowhere, Kirby, Ohio to be exact. The closest city is Upper Sandusky I suppose. So that will be another memorable vacation I am sure.

Then there is another first. My first cruise! Ashley, Debbie, Shannon and I are going on a 5 night cruise to the Bahamas. I got a little worried since we are going Aug 22- 27, I thought it would mess up my training for the half marathon (which is Sept.6) Luckily there is a track on the ship! So I just have to make time for it in my vacation. I may have to rearrange my schedule a bit so I don't have to do the 9 or 10 mile run on the ship but, there is still two 5 + mile runs I will need to do. I just have to remember I CAN NOT slack off since it is so close to the race. It shouldnt be too bad. I don't really drink much, even though I'm sure everyone else will. I won't be able to so I can get up early and run. At first I was starting to have reservations about it but I think it will be fun and I am super excited and relieved after looking up info about the ship (the Carnival Facination) and finding out about the track. I think I will have a really good time!

Other than that I am ready to start training and be SUPER fit! I am also glad my bestie wants to do it with me. Since I don't think it is physically possible for me to run with Zach since his legs are 2 times longer. I'd die trying to keep up with his strides or he'd be walking while I was running! I am sure that is a bit of an exaggeration but... I know I would be running faster to keep up without meaning to and I would tire myself out.

The weather is going to be GORGEOUS this weekend. And I expect its going to be a super fun one. Saturday I am running. and probably walking Kathy. My mom and I are painting my kitchen (and possibly getting new light fixtures?) which will put my house one step further towards being the way I want it. The next big project will be new furniture and curtains for the family room. I need to start saving for it. Saturday night Ashley, Debbie, my parents, Don and Liz and Zach and I are all going out for Mexican and possibly drinks which will be fun. Sunday Zach doesn't have to work for once. I think we are going hiking in Sea Shore with Kathy, then we need to wash our cars. Kathy could use a bath too.

I am in a real good mood and cant wait for the weekend! Or California!

Brooke Waggoner

Is coming here to Virginia Beach! To Jew Ma on April 26! Which is AWESOME. I really like her music and she even has polaroids of herself (as seen above) which makes her even cooler. So I am super excited. She is playing with some other bands which I am now checking out. Paper Route I like a lot so far. I have yet to listen to This Providence. Ashley B said she would go to the show with me. But this has made what wasn't the best day at least somewhat improved.

Dons house plan is irritating me.

I really need to use some energy up at the gym tonight. I wish I could just go now!

My mom said she would help paint my kitchen this weekend : ) and we are going out with Don and Liz.

So I got this weird text last night saying that my card had been deactivated and to call some number (757) 772-0204 to reactivate it. I figured it was a scam. It turns out both my parents got it as well. I googled it and some people had also gotten the same text saying it was a scam. I sent in a tip to WVEC about it! hah. But I could see some older person getting that text and falling for it.

One of the Verizon diggers (from my parents last friday) had left their shirt in my moms backyard. It turned out there was a name tag. So I called the number on it and told the woman from the company I had John A. Bergerson's name tag and shirt. She was cracking up at me when I was saying how it was all frozen and that his card had his little face on it. I am positive I was her most interesting caller today. So I guess someone is going to come retrieve his shirt! He may need that Id card!

So those were my good deeds for the day.

Paris Rain

Is to be the new paint color in my kitchen. I spent Yesterday removing the wall paper border in the kitchen to prepare for painting next weekend. I hope I can find someone to help me paint. I have to paint the ceiling as well as the walls, which will suck. Luckily I think my parents are going to replace the light fixtures in there for me. Which will be super sweet.

Along with taking down the wall paper, which I couldn't have done without Zach's mom's steamer thing... I did numerous chores. I actually think I accomplished almost everything I had put on the list! My house is very clean now, I just hope it stays that way. I even mopped the bathroom floors and everything, which was much needed.

So last night there was a dusting of snow. Which the roads weren't bad at all. There was a tiny bits of snow on the road in places. But still the traffic was horrific. After passing one accident on Independence the entire road was closed off near Pembroke Mall. So, I had to go some roundabout way to get back on track which took absolutely forever. I had to detour past the old FX / flea market building which seemed to have caught fire, AGAIN. It was charred and collapsed all on itself this time and it was smoking and firetrucks were spraying it. SO it is officially the end of that buildings life. All in all it took me an HOUR to get to work. compared to 15 or 20 minutes.

I have managed to beat my best tetris score, though Im still not high enough to knock zach out of second. Someday....

Penguin kicked kathy out of her bed for the majority of yesterday....
